Eagles of Death Metal singer Jesse Hughes, whose band survived the terror attack in Paris in 2015 when shots rang out during their concert, lambasted the “March for Our Lives” in a weekend post.
“We’re going to denigrate the memory and curse ourselves by exploiting the death of 16 of our fellow students for a few Facebook likes and some media attention,” Hughes wrote on social media.

“This almost sounds like the plan of a kid, maybe like a high school student,” Hughes added. “Oh wait, that’s right … The Whitney Houston song about letting the children lead the way wasn’t actually (an) operating paradigm for life.”
He also claimed that they were peddling misinformation, saying that the truth didn’t fit their “(expletive) narrative.”
Then they took “multiple days off of school playing hooky at the expense of 16 of your classmates blood….!…. it might be funny if it wasn’t so pathetic and disgusting.”
Hughes continued: “As the survivor of a mass shooting I can tell you from first-hand experience that all of you protesting and taking days off from school insult the memory of those who were killed and abuse and insult me and every other lover of liberty by your every action.”
